Hi! I'm Ray, Owner and Bayker For Depoe Baykery

My first job was selling Spudnud Donuts door to door in Billings, Montana from 1966-1969. In high school, I worked with my Dad at Hyde's Foodland in Island City, Oregon from 1973 - 1974.

Dad bought a bakery in Hermiston, Oregon in 1974, "Maryann's Sweet Shop," named after my Mother. I worked with my parents for three years.

When it was time to do something different, I worked in construction, central pivot irrigation, cook and other odd jobs. I moved to the Oregon Coast in May of 1982 to work at Salishan Lodge as a cook. I later moved to the Bake Shop. Bake Shop lead Baker for four years.

I went to work for Safeway in Newport for three months, moved to Lincoln City as Bakery Manager for two years.

Helped build the Oregon Coast Aquarium then went to work for the Aquarium from 1992 - 2000.

I went back to work at Salishan Lodge in the Bake Shop part-time. Six months later lead Baker for five more years.

Cooked at Pig N Pancake, two years.

Spirit Mountain Casino Baker, one year.

Look: World Famous Little John still likes to help
out in the kitchen at 75 years young.

May 2010 was the start of Depoe Baykery!
